International Pronouns Day 2022

October 19 is International Pronouns Day!

Individual Pronouns are strongly interlaced with the identity and selfgovernment of LGBT*IQ-people. Especially people, who do not strictly experience their gender in a binary sense of male/female, but may identify as genderfluid or nonbinary, use pronouns to express their gender, as not to be judged by their looks, or be misgendered.

In some cases, neopronouns are preferred (for example dey/dem), in other cases no pronouns are used at all, instead their name is used.

Pronouns can help get rid of biases about a persons gender, and they create diversity in the community.

Many people in the LGBT*IQ-Community use them to take a stand against solely binary understanding of gender, and to feel safe and happy with their own identity.
